Description

Economics provides training in logical thought and analysis which can be applied widely in every-day decision making, not just to matters which are usually labelled 'economic'. The underlying philosophy of the faculty's teaching and research program is that a rapidly changing world requires adaptable analytical skills. Accordingly, its aim is to prepare students with a wide range of career options that are readily adapted to the issues of the day. These may be positions in industry, government, or in non-government and international organisations.
